Martial Arts to Combat Stress and Anxiety

 Kick the Stress! 
Stress Management through Martial Arts 
for Everyone 
(Kids and All Ages)

Written by: Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts

We live in a time which celebrates differences among people. In this world where nothing can be generalized for everyone, if there's something that every human being faces in some way or other, that is stress. Stress and anxiety have become the defining features of the 21st century woman and man. Studies show that even children, whom we normally believe to be living in that idyllic happiness of childhood, are not necessarily free of stress and anxiety in their own ways.

Understanding Stress: What makes it Difficult for Children and Adults to Manage Stress
Stress and anxiety arises from those situations where people do not want to be, but cannot escape from. Its root lies in the anxieties of being not able to live up to the situation or deal with the situation. Among adults, a large number of stress factors have been identified such as:

* Work in unmanageable amounts and not enough time to complete
* Lack of interest in work
* Strains in personal relationships
* Responsibilities in home, family and society

This list is not much shorter when it comes to children. Kids too face a number of stressful moments:
* Workload and the demands of academic life
* Peer pressure and the demand for fitting-in
* Strains in friendship, family and teenage relationships
* Psychological and physical changes which accompany growth and maturation 

At the core of each of these is a conflict between the ability of the person and the expectations/challenges of the situation. Even everyday moments like commuting can be stressful because the personality of a person determines what becomes stressful to him/her.

Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts to Combat Stress and Anxiety
Bruce McCorry's Academy follows a special method in which children and adults are equipped with life skills through martial arts, one of the perfect stress management solution ever. In turn, these life skills will help them to do well in demanding situations. 

Adults and children can learn time management, quick reasoning and leadership skills, which will reduce anxiety in their work and academic life. Martial arts boost skills like confidence and decision making, which are two important tools for combating stress in public life. In personal lives as well, martial art comes to the aid of kids and adults. It transforms your personality from the core by teaching you how to approach life positively. You will see how miraculously your relationship with friends, family and your partner improves. Kids benefit from the courage and confidence to combat situations like bullying, peer pressure and classroom stress in general.

There are three things which martial arts alone can give you in its full effect: these are health, fitness and an optimistic attitude to life. These three key factors are identified by Bruce McCorry's Martial art training because it recognizes that the key to stress management lies in identifying and remedying those factors which draw you back from giving your best to demanding situations. Martial arts also have unique mind healing properties that de-stress your everyday living.

Stress-management and confidence building programs have become the business catchwords of the day. Those profit-oriented programs can never adequately deal with stress. Only a more human approach which understands the real nature of stress and tries to amend it can be a real remedy. That's exactly where Bruce McCorry's martial art lessons become different from the rest.  Kick the Stress Today!  Join the North Shore's Premiere Martial Arts Academy..  Bruce McCorry's (Peabody MA)  Since 1978!

As a parent, one of your primary concerns is knowing your children are safe and engaging in healthy activity whenever you're not around to supervise and monitor them. You worry when your child or children isn't around an adult you can trust to ensure that they stay out of trouble. But, what if you cannot find an adult that's willing to supervise your child after school hours? A good alternative is an after school martial arts program.

In a study by David J. Shernoff in 2010, children enrolled in an after school program showed improved academic and social competence compared to peers who didn't attend any form of after school program. Another study conducted by the National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center indicates that 90% of adults believe that children should have access to after school programs. However, many parents report that it's hard to find a suitable after school program within their community. If you're among the parents looking for a suitable program for your child to attend after school, martial arts training is a good option.

Benefits of an After School Martial Arts Program
Unlike many programs which focus only on the child's mental development, martial arts focuses on the areas of cognitive, social, emotional and physical development.

Cognitive Development
School hours can be grueling for your little one's especially if he or she is having trouble with one or more subjects. Martial arts training involves learning the different rules and moves that are particular to the specific art. It's more or less similar to learning a new language or subject. The martial arts learning process will help your little one's brain grasp concepts and interpret them faster. Fast thinking and reaction is also promoted through martial arts which requires the child to react fast in self defense or demonstrating a move.

Social Development
The child will have the chance to meet and interact with other kids and adults in the academy. Martial arts instructors are usually skilled at helping the child develop healthy social skills that include courtesy, respect, leadership and teamwork. Your child will also get to interact with different people that they wouldn't normally come across in their school. This will enable your child to develop self confidence especially when meeting strangers. This skill will come in handy when your little one grows up and is building their network of friends.

Emotional Development
Healthy emotional development is critical in every child's development process. Through martial arts, your kids can learn how to positively handle emotional crises such as stressful situations. For example, after a long stressful day at school, kids can learn positive ways of relieving stress through physical activity as opposed to negative activities like indulging in alcohol and drugs, or poor fast food diets and sugary snacks.

Physical Development
Today, more kids are being diagnosed as obese or overweight than ever before. Martial arts training offers a good opportunity for kids to keep fit in a fun and safe way. Becoming a master martial artist requires utmost discipline in terms of eating healthy and keeping a strict training schedule. Through martial arts after school programs, you can ensure that your child grows healthy and strong.

If you're looking for a good after school program in Peabody, MA, Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts Academy offers the best choice in After School Martial Arts Programs for kids. You can now enroll your kids for the September classes. The  program comes inclusive of transport for your child from school to the academy.

Martial Arts - Safe Natural Way to Manage Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia

Martial Arts as a Safe Natural Way to Manage Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia 
written by: Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts

Every family gets happy when they welcome a new baby into the world. As children grow, they bring joy and fond memories to us through their playful and energetic nature. Every family member wishes their children good health as they grow. Worry and despair grips parents and other family members if the little one is diagnosed with an illness. Unfortunately, today, the number of children being diagnosed with Autism is on the rise. This condition encompasses a group of related diseases like ADHD, Dyslexia, ADD and Aspergers Syndrome. Children diagnosed with this condition are special in their own way. Early on in life, they are met with various challenges which if managed well, the child can lead a normal and productive life.

If your child is diagnosed with any condition within the autistic spectrum, it's an opportunity to nurture the special traits in him or her. Examples of prominent people diagnosed with such conditions include Albert Einstein, best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, Justin Timberlake, a critically acclaimed American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer and Sir Richard Branson, best known as the founder of Virgin Group.

Treating ADHD and Dyslexia with Drugs
Common practice of combating these conditions once they're diagnosed is the use of prescription drugs. However, there's a downside to this approach. Many of the drugs aren't designed for kids. In addition, some come with serious side effects. It would be best to use safer and more child friendly alternatives.

Martial Arts: A fun, safe and natural way to treat ADHD, Dyslexia and Autism in Children
A study conducted in the Wisconsin University in 2010 revealed that martial arts can help to reverse and manage the negative effects of autistic symptoms in kids. Some of the benefits of martial arts as a safe way to treat conditions within the autistic spectrum include the following.

Focused Way to Release Energy
Children with autistic disorders are usually hyperactive. Many people view this as an aggressive behavior. Such children are viewed as demanding a lot of unnecessary attention. However, this is quite natural as the child simply wants a way of releasing all the pent up energy. Martial Arts offers a safe way for the child to release the energy. Through training, the child will find an activity he or she can fully focus on. In addition, the intense exercises will enable the little one release their energy while learning the vital life skill of self defense.

Cognitive Development
Children diagnosed with ADHD and Dyslexia are often considered "slow learners" at an early age. They will usually find it difficult processing complex ideas. Martial Arts training focuses on repetition of routines which helps the child's brain memorize and process information faster. The fun aspect of the training makes learning an enjoyable activity for the child. These learning processes are soon transferred to classroom and home environments where the child will find it easier to grasp and memorize new ideas.

Children diagnosed with autistic disorders often find it difficult to socialize with their peers. They'll usually prefer being on their own. Martial Arts training offers the child to socialize with other students and instructors. The child will learn the vital skills of self expression, courtesy and interaction with other people. This will build the child's self esteem and confidence.
